[SHIP] Armored Cruiser (Rock/Crystal)

Postby Basilisk » Sat Dec 14, 2013 11:25 am

The Armored Cruiser is a ship which combines Rock, Crystal and Mantis characteristics.
It's not overpowered as it may seem but it is quite good. It has crystal weapons, rock plating and mantis pheromones. Even if it doesn't start with it it can have a four room teleporter and it has a nice shield and cloak effect.
It replaces the Kestrel type 1.
I still have to do the description, but apart from that it should work. Please tell me if you find something wrong or if you have some advice. :D

Does someone know how to change the size of the shields? Because know the animation of the shot that hits the shields isn't where the picture of the shields is. it's too large. I don't want to make larger shield picture because the ship isn't very big so I'd like to know if there's a way to tell the game to make the animation a bit closer to the ship.

Looks nice, but I was always a fan of the Carnelian's hull, so that may not be an accurate indicator.

I never said it was bad. :P

That's an interesting shield graphic, by the way.

Here you can find info on how to adjust in-game shield size to match your custom graphic: http://ftlwiki.com/wiki/Modding_Ships

It's a very simple fix, all the game needs is the size of the ellipse. :) You can edit the file with Notepad.

This is probably one of the best mod ships I've ever used. Definitely a new favorite of mine. I felt the need to make an account here to say that. :D
